Deep, wine-colored walls, along with the rust-hued velvet sofa, ottoman and coordinating accent pillows, give this living room a rich, contemporary feel.

The old, outdated living room with this updated, stylish living room. The couple wanted to blend the natural, rustic style of the cabin and a more modern feel. To make this a reality, they used natural materials such as the leather ottoman and pillows and the wicker storage baskets. They then added modern, open shelving next to the television. With the suede couch, the couple now has plenty of seating.
Gray tones and a check-like design on the rug compliment the coffered ceiling with gray panels. A rich purple velvet sofa is decorated with pastel throw pillows. Tufted lavender chairs complete the seating arrangement around the low, cube coffee table. Metallic finishes accent the polished design.
